UGANDA has a crucial away World Cup qualifier at the weekend where any result short of a win by the Cranes could prove disastrous.

Local soccer governing body FUFA has done everything within its means to ensure that the Cranes secure that badly needed win. The team’s visas were processed well in advance just like the contingent’s travel and accomodation.

This is all on top of getting a last minute replacement for coach Laszlo Csaba who caught everyone off guard when he recently quit his job.

The onus is therefore now on the players to deliver their part of the bargain. There are all signs of a passion to deliver at least going by this week’s arrivals of Uganda’s foreign based stars.

Ugandans are praying that team captain Ibrahim Sekagya also lives to his promise of linking up with the team in Niger. The prayers are understandable. The last time Sekagya promised to join the team in Niamey he didn’t.

Sekagya, one of the most experienced and skilled players on the team also missed the away match against Benin and the results were disastrous.

Alot has however happened since that time. Sekagya returned for Uganda’s battles with Angola and the results were very good.

Particularly outstanding were his leadership qualities and thirst for victory.

If Sekagya fulfills his promise and turns up in Niamey, he should be able to motivate the Cranes to victory.
